Suffering from varicose veins? For too long patients have been told that treatment for varicose veins is “cosmetic only” and not necessary. We know now that this is wrong; every year, 1 in 23 people with varicose veins will experience progression of their symptoms1. This can result in swollen ankles, leg ulcers, skin discolouration, and more – not to mention the discomfort, pain, and loss of confidence that those living with venous disease can endure.
Treatment of varicose veins gives patients a better quality of life2 and stops this deterioration – as well as restoring your confidence and the appearance of your legs!
So, do you need treatment? If you have varicose veins and any of the following symptoms:
- “phlebitis” (clots in the varicose veins)
- red or brown ankle skin
- ankle eczema
- open sore (leg ulcer) – even if it has healed!
The Vein Clinic uses the most advanced techniques and treatments to ensure that having your veins treated has a minimal effect on your life. Our beautiful Subiaco clinic was custom-built for walk-in walk-out procedures, eliminating the need for hospital stays and time off work.
